Early Life And Education
Ronald Gavril was born on 10 July 1986 in Bacău, Romania. He credits his two brothers for inspiring him to become a fighter. Although his brothers had been fighters for quite some time, Gavril only joined in 2002 the local boxing club SCM Bacău in his home town.
As an amateur, he gained a lot of experience as he fought 180 times losing only 15 of those fights. Ronald won in his career no less than ten national titles. Twice he won "Centura de Aur" (the Golden Belt), one of the oldest trophies in the World amateur boxing.
Gavril trained with the National Team of Romania eight-ten months out of the year. He represented his country in international tournaments such as Worlds and European (three each). Ronald medalled in Cadet Worlds in 2003 and EU also later in his senior years. As an adult, Gavril's best performance was in 2008 when he won his first fight to advance to the quarter-finals of the European Championships. In other AIBA international competitions, Gavril lost in the first round of the 2010 European championships, the first round of the 2007 World championships, and won one fight to advance to the round of 16 at the 2009 World championships.
Gavril turned pro in 2011 at age 25 moving to Los Angeles from Romania, so he did not pursue his dream of representing his country in the London 2012 Olympics. Early on in his professional career he struggled to find a trainer. Gavril was also having trouble getting fights. In May 2012, Ronald decided to move to Las Vegas, Nevada, where he currently resides.
Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe took notice to Ronald's skills during his sparring sessions at The Mayweather Boxing Club. Ronald Gavril signed with Mayweather Promotions in March 2013.
